The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

By Barbara Robinson

Directed by Sarah Karlen

In this funny and beloved Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant encounters the truly mischievous and ill-behaved Herdman kids. The result seems like a recipe for disaster as the pageant preparations go from bad to worse. Can the love and light of Christmas possibly survive the Herdmans? Bring the whole family to laugh with every outrageous turn of events and to rethink the possibilities of the joy that Christmas brings.
